Have I got a deal for you!

Want to be both disgusted and terrified at the same time? Well, have I got a deal for you! Check out the targets DHS is using to train cops to NOT hesitate (because cops are really known for showing too much restraint when it comes to shooting civilians). We have nothing to worry about, ya know, except being slaughtered by the law.

We are so fucked.

Christopher Dorner

This is exactly like the Iran/Iraq war; I hope they both lose. To clarify, since Dorner is the enemy of my enemy, that only makes him my enemy's enemy. He is nothing to me but an interesting news story. Yes, I hate cops, but I also hate aggression.

However, the LAPD is going to have a LOT more enemies if they keep shooting at every pick-up truck on the road. I'd be willing to be my pension that by the time this is over, the cops will have killed more innocent bystanders than Dorner will have killed cops/families of cops.

And please, let's stop with the "finest" and the "bravest" bullshit. That hasn't been the case in decades, and it will never be the case again. These thugs break into homes, kill dogs and the elderly (sometimes the bedridden paralyzed elderly), shoot kids in the neck while they're sleeping on the couch. They routinely step on both the constitution and our necks, but they're "so brave" they have to pump 40 rounds into the paper lady's truck, because the tiny Mexican woman in the Blue Nissan Titan looked eerily similar to the large black man in the Silver Toyota Tacoma. So brave they are, indeed.

If you're a cop in LA, you might want to start standing up for what's right and speaking out against the corruption. Because I have a feeling that when this is over and Dorner is dead, some of the families of the cops newest victims might take his methods to heart.

And chances are, they won't send a nice manifesto to help the cops figure out who to hunt.

So, to once again clarify, Dorner is not on my team. He doesn't represent me. I don't hope he is successful, I hope he fails. And the exact same can be said for the police. You're not on my team, you don't represent me, and I hope you fail.

Lysander's Ghost

I haven't been able to get a good recording of it yet, but here are the lyrics. I'll post either a video or a audio track within the next month or two so you can hear the melody and whatnot.

Lysander's Ghost

A man is nonetheless a slave,
Bound by shackles, whips, and chains
That gets to choose a new master every few years
Instead of being voluntary
They say this evil is necessary
To protect us from our temptations and our fears

They call our vices "crimes"
While making crimes their vices
And their "security" leaves us all afraid
We're forced to bow to their whims
They never answer for their sins
By force, by gun, we are kept in chains
It wasn't meant to be this way

(Chorus)
And Lysander's ghost screams to our souls
To not take back, but abolish control
For too long we've chose not to be free
Content with dying on our knees
And Lysander's ghost screams to our souls
To not take back, but abolish control
For too long we've chose not to be free
Content with dying on our knees

I contend all men are flawed
Falling short of the glory of God
Prone to corruption, temptation, and greed
Yet we grant men the right to kill,
Kidnap, assault and steal
To protect us from killers, kidnappers, rapists, and thieves
It doesn't make sense to me

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
No one can be trusted, no one believed
Everyone is suspect, 'cause all have been deceived
If no one is perfect, then no one should lead
No slaves and no masters, where all men are free

(Chorus)

A man is nonetheless a slave
Bound by shackles, whips, and chains
That gets to choose a new master every few years...

[ I took various quotes from Lysander Spooner and made them more lyrical to write this song. ]
